Will Davison (born 30 August 1982 in Melbournemarker) is an Australian racing driver. He presently competes with the Toll Holden Racing Team in the premier Australian sedan class, V8 Supercar.

Early career

Davison won the 2001 Australian Formula Ford Championship while competing against Champ Car racer Will Power and Leanne Ferrier.

Davison dynasty

His grandfather Lex Davison won the Australian Grand Prixmarker four times. His brother Alex Davison is also a racing driver and has won numerous National titles including The Porsche Cup. Continuing the family tradition, cousin James Davison is currently racing in a Team Australia Jnr position after competing the 2005 Victorian Formula Ford series.

Racing in Europe

Taking a common route to Formula One, Davison picked up and moved to Buckinghamshire in Englandmarker where he competed in the 2002 British Formula Renault Championship finishing fourth at seasons end. For 2003 he moved up to the British Formula 3 Championship with Alan Docking Racing but an enforced mid-year change of teams to Menu F3 did not help his campaign. Davison continued with Menu F3 into 2004 but it was cut short for financial reasons.

V8 Supercar

In 2005 he raced in several V8 Supercar races back in Australia after signing with Team Dynamik as a full time driver. A change of ownership after the season opening Formula 1 support race at Albert Park left him without a seat until the endurance events, the Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000, where he was picked up by Dick Johnson Racing, co-driving with Steven Johnson in the #17 Westpoint Falcon.

During his time between Formula 3 and V8 supercar seats, Davison drove for A1 Team Australia in the inaugural season of the A1 Grand Prix where he was again under Alan Docking Racing. This time he experienced many ups and downs with many instances where he was taken out of a race due to no fault of his own. On the ups his highest finishing position was sixth at both the Portuguese and Australian rounds, where despite a rocky start in Portugal, proved vital in scoring points for the team.

By mid-November, 2005 Davison was issued a full-time seat in the 2006 V8 Supercar Championship, driving the number 18 Ford with Dick Johnson Racing. In 2006 Davison was plagued by technical difficulties, resulting in a 19th position finish in the championship.

In 2007 Davison demonstrated he has the talent and speed to be a V8 Supercar champion which culminated in his first win in race 2 at Eastern Creek Racewaymarker in Round 2, 2008. This was the middle of a dream run which saw him claim his first V8 supercar round win along with giving DJR their first round victory in 7 seven years.

In 2009 Davison Moves to the Toll Holden Racing Team for his first full season in a Holden Commodore after being in a Dick Johnson Racing Falcon for three years. On the 11th of October, he teamed up with teammate Garth Tander to win his first Bathurst 1000.
